August is right around the corner, and that means back to school or starting school for many of our kids. Actually where I live, school started this past Monday so some kids are already in school. We as parents have a love hate relationship with back to school. We love that the kids are out of the house and doing something constructive (we hope) but we have to get out there and shop for all the things they need.
New clothes, new books, new backpacks, and school supplies are all on our lists. What about lunch though? If your child isn't eating at the school cafeteria then you are packing him or her a lunch every day. Personally, I like packing a lunch because I have control over what my child eats. School cafeteria food is often pizza, hot dogs, corn dogs, or burritos which are all high in fat and not healthy. When I pack a lunch for my kids I can use whole wheat bread, fresh fruits, and milk or juice. I used to use brown paper bags for their lunches but the problem is they don't stay cool. By the time my kids had lunch, their juice or milk was warm and so was the fruit and the sandwich.
I found this insulated lunch bag on Amazon and it is amazing. It is adjustable so it will be easy for any child to carry. It keeps their lunches cold for up to 4 hours, and it is insulated. It has 3 compartments to put things in, and the insulated compartment is very roomy. It also has two netted compartments on each side to hold water bottles or fruit or other things. I really think it will make life easier for both kids and their moms.
